not a particularly difficult art, and the
more you transform and learn from
the experience, the more sense it

tools and ingredients.

essential ingredients for enhancing

1. Agile methods
2. DevOps practices
3. API Management
4. Identity-centric Security
AGILE methods and practices
Firms can improve the business impact of their
digital transformation by 33% if they move from
basic to advanced usage of agile.
Agile represents the ability of an enterprise to respond to change quickly
and confidently—and as a matter of everyday business. Agile methods
help build and deliver products incrementally, get value to customers
quickly and align development with business needs.
Advanced use of DevOps can translate to a 35%
greater business impact of digital transformation.
DevOps involves operations personnel and development engineers
participating together in the entire lifecycle, from design through
the development process to production support
APIs are the most transformative technology on
the menu, with advanced use of APIs bringing a
52% greater impact.
APIs allow applications to access data and services across a network
and can simplify integrating different apps and systems. A company
may release its APIs to the public or partners so that other software
developers can design products that are powered by its service, or
it can incorporate external APIs to enhance functionality and speed
The foundation of the digital transformation
feast is identity-centric security. Advanced
usage of these practices brings a 24% greater
Security with the user’s identity at its center. Identity-centric security uses
context, behavioral analytics and predictive approaches to ensure users of digital
platforms are who they claim to be; and to create trusted digital relationships so
people can access a company’s data on the device of their choice, anywhere,
With the careful use of these four
ingredients, anyone can improve the
results of their digital transformation.
